Man United players think Solskjaer will be given permanent role if they beat PSG

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has gone unbeaten in his first nine games as Man United manager

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can do no wrong at Manchester United.

Eyebrows were raised when it was announced in December that Solskjaer would take over as manager from Jose Mourinho.

However, he has well and truly proved his doubters wrong.

United have played nine games with Solskjaer at the helm; in which the club have won eight of them.

They haven't all been easy games, either. 

Solskjaer's side have played away games against Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal, with United emerging victorious on both occasions.

Their only blip came in the form of a 2-2 draw against Burnley but even that game can be considered a success as United scored two late goals to salvage a draw.

He really has been a revelation.

He's transformed the club's results, while also reintroducing an attacking style of football which gets the best out of the players at his disposal.

Solskjaer is currently only interim manager at the club but there have been calls to make his role permanent.

And, according to the Sun, Man United's players have a theory about him making his role permanent.

Their report reads that the majority of the Red Devils squad and members of the backroom staff believe Solskjaer will land the job on a full-time basis if they get past PSG in February.

It certainly will be a tough task: PSG are one of the best teams in Europe.

But, given the results Solskjaer has already achieved since becoming interim manager, United may well pull off a shock.

PSG will also be without the services of Neymar, meaning United's chances of pulling off a result have been increased dramatically.

The Sun's report also details a recent meeting between Solskjaer and Ed Woodward at Carrington.

An Old Trafford source said: "Woodward spent around half an hour with Ole at Carrington in the middle of last week.

"He was passing on his thanks from the board and seeing if he needed anything.

"There was a little appraisal of the squad and mood. There was no assurances of a permanent offer as of yet.

"Woodward is fully in Ole's corner but the Glazers have the final say.

"He pushed for Jose, so has some making up to do. The consensus around the training ground is Ole will get the job though with a positive result against PSG."
